Menu for Hope II

Not quite a year ago, in the wake of the tsumami, food bloggers around the world got together to raise money for relief. This year we are raising funds to support the victims of the devastating earthquake in the Kashmir region of India and Pakistan. According to government sources in Pakistan, it is feared more than 40,000 people may have died, at least 65,000 may be injured and some four million may be left without shelter as the result of an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.6 on the Richter scale, which struck on October 8, 2005.

Now that the end of of the year has rolled around, it's the perfect time to think about making a donation. To make it easy and fun, we are only asking for a donation of $5 each and when you donate specify a blogger/treat and be entered in a virtual drawing to win a prize (you do not have to be present to win!). Cooking with Amy is offering a copy of Very Maple Syrup and package of homemade Maple Nut Granola. Curious to taste one of my concoctions? Here's your chance!

A big thanks to Pim for organizing. Check out her web site for a full listing of bloggers and prizes or click on the Menu for Hope button in the sidebar. After reviewing the prizes, please do donate!
